This Order designates what is “excluded land” for the purposes of section 33 of the Land Reform (Scotland) Act 2003 (“the Act”).
Article 2(1) and (2) designates as “excluded land” the settlements listed in the Schedule to the Order. The boundaries of the settlements are delineated on maps known as “The Community Right to Buy (Definition of Excluded Land) (Scotland) Order 2006: Definitive Maps”. The effect of a settlement being so designated is that a community body (as defined in section 34 of the Act) is not permitted to register an interest in the Register of Community Interests in Land in any land forming part of the settlement.
